Risk of Impending Stroke for Kazemeyni Boroujerdi in Evin Prison

The Committee of Human Rights Reporters: Sources in Iran have reported that over the past few months Kazemeyni Boroujerdi has suffered headaches, dizziness, nausea, visual disturbances, numbness in his limbs, and has frequently lost his balance and fallen to the ground.
According to statements by Evin prison clinic doctors who examined Boroujerdi, these symptoms are suspected to be the result of a brain tumor.

One informed source who refused to be named stated, “Without an MRI and specialized tests we cannot precisely confirm his condition, but considering his dire physical condition and the fact that Mr. Boroujerdi has repeatedly lost his balance and fallen to the ground these past few months, there is cause for concern about an impending stroke. He should be hospitalized as soon as possible.”
Kazemeyni Boroujerdi was arrested in his home on October 8, 2006, the case against him was filed at the Special Court for Clergies, and he was placed under severe psychological and physical pressures. His current physical condition is very poor as he remains detained in Evin prison.
